A Ukrainian says that he broke into the Solaris drug market’s master wallet and diverted its funds to a Ukrainian humanitarian charity.
This Christmas, Ukrainian cyber intelligence expert Alex Holden is giving back to his homeland.
This wallet was used by buyers and dealers to deposit and withdraw funds, acting as the site’s cryptocurrency exchange.
With money quickly going in and out of the wallet, it rarely contained more than 3 bitcoin, worth $50,000, Holden said.
“Maybe the Kremlin won’t defend their country’s drug trade and fix the drug problems instead of invading Ukraine.”.
The attacks could have an impact beyond the dark web drug trade in Russia.
He noted that shortly after the RT interview, the hackers said in a Telegram post that they had received financial contributions from Solaris. »
